Lovely as a Tree

This project was actually ready for yesterday, there just wasn’t the time to sit down and put it together.  Yesterday was all about family and it was wonderful.

Lovely as a Tree

I started with ribbon.  Not my usual, but I am trying to get used to this new striped cotton ribbon, and the only way to do that is to use it.  Hello honey was the ribbon color, so I coordinated the card front with the same color cardstock.  It was too smooth so to the big shot it went for some embossing.  Since it was a tree image, woodgrain worked great for me.

Before I forget, as I finished up with my sponging, I decided I couldn’t see the embossing like I wanted, so I lightly rubbed my inked sponge across the top of the embossing until it was dark enough.  Loved how that turned out.

For this pretty tree.  A single stamp in mossy meadow on watercolor paper, that is all.  I wanted to soften it a bit, so I spritzed it was water and allowed the image to blend some.  Sponging with  sahara sand for everyone, a touch of tearing, plenty of dimensionals, and this was done.  I don’t often make masculine cards, let alone an all occasion one.  But here you have it.

Have a creative day!
